Around Carnival

Piping in the Lanterns

«Piping in the Lanterns» marks the last preparation before the curtain will rise for the magic three days. 

On the eve of Morgenstreich the cliques meet at their artist's workshop. In a little procession the pipers in their civilian clothes escort the lanterns - covered in most cases - to the locations where the cliques will start next morning at 4 a.m. 

In this way more than 200 lanterns are brought to the city centre.
